How to setup the HUION 430P drawing tablet on Ubuntu 20.04

Update 6 Feb 2021: Added instructions to enable the HUION H430P to use the wacom driver. Verified on Ubuntu 18.04 and Ubuntu 20.04.

If you want to draw on your computer, you can always use your mouse. But if you want to really draw, you can upgrade to a drawing tablet (also known as graphics tablets). Here is one below. It is an entry level drawing tablet, has a pressure-sensitive pen that does not require batteries, and the actual tablet to draw on, looks like an over-sized laptop touchpad. Instead of your fingers, you use the pen to move the pointer on your screen.

An entry-level drawing tablet.

In this post we are using the Huion Inspiroy 430P, an entry-level drawing tablet that is supported on Ubuntu. There is mainline support in the Linux kernel for this tablet since 2015, therefore the following should work with Ubuntu 16.04 or newer. They have been tested on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. It is suggested to use a recent version of Ubuntu as there is drawing tablet support in the system settings.

Setting up the the Huion 430P on Ubuntu 20.04

Connect the drawing tablet to a USB port on your computer. Then, run the following. You should get the following two lines, for the pad and the stylus. If not, continue reading to setup your X server to recognize the Huion 430P.

$ xsetwacom --list devices
HUION Huion Tablet Pen stylus id: 15 type: STYLUS
HUION Huion Tablet Pad pad id: 16 type: PAD

The X server has a wacom driver that can be used for the Huion 430P. In Ubuntu, this driver is loaded by default. But the driver needs help to recognize which USB devices are to be used by the wacom driver. You provide this help by editing the file /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/70-wacom.conf and referencing the Huion drawing tablet.

First, reconnect the drawing tablet and run dmesg to view the most recent kernel messages.

$ dmesg

Now we have enough information to write the rule that will match our drawing tablet and load the wacom X11 driver. Here is the addition to the file /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/70-wacom.conf The identifier is a free-text description of the device. We match the product name and the USBID. We picked the values from the output of the dmesg command. In the MatchProduct, we match the product name HUION. This should work with other Huion tablets as well. Then, in MatchUSBID we match the vendor part of the USB ID, so that other Huion tablets should work as well.

# Huion H430P drawing tablet
Section "InputClass"
	Identifier "Huion H430P drawing tablet"
	MatchProduct "HUION"
        MatchUSBID "256c:*"
	MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
	Driver "wacom"

At this point, you need to restart the X server (either logout and log in again) or restart your computer. The X server checks the configuration only when it starts. Once you restart the X server, verify you get the following output.

$ xsetwacom --list devices
HUION Huion Tablet Pen stylus id: 15 type: STYLUS
HUION Huion Tablet Pad pad id: 16 type: PAD

Configuring the Huion 430P on Ubuntu 20.04

There are settings in GNOME Shell to configure a drawing tablet. There is no specific configuration for the Huion 430P but there are for other Huion models. It is easy to add support for the 430P and I have some configuration. For now, we accept the default setup. If we want to perform specific configuration, we can always use the xsetwacom utility.

You can use the drawing tablet as a mouse. The small area of the drawing tablet (4.3″ diagonally) is mapped directly to your full display. That is, unlike a mouse where you can lift it to move the pointer further away, on a tablet instead pointer is mapped directly to the full display. Which means that a small 4.3″ active tablet area might be too dense/sensitive for your FullHD or 4K display. Each application like GIMP, Inkscape and Blender have support to configure input devices like drawing tablets. You can configure in them whether you want to map the active area to the whole screen, or the window’s drawing area.

Configuring GIMP

We have installed GIMP 2.10 (snap package) and we have started drawing with the Brush tool. We use the default settings and switched the Dynamics to Pressure Size. This meas that the pen, which detects the pressure, should draw a line that has a variable size, depending on the pressure. But it does not. The first line has been drawn with the mouse, and the second with the drawing tablet. At this stage, the drawing tablet is just smoother than the mouse. We need to properly configure the drawing tablet.

Drawing in GIMP. First line is with the mouse, the second with the drawing tablet.
We have not configured the drawing tablet yet.

In the above screenshot there is a tab called Device Status. It looks like the following. It only shows the Core Pointer and has not information about the drawing tablet. This means that the drawing tablet is not configured. It also means that the drawing tablet will probably work, but only as a mouse. The pressure sensitivity of the stylus will not be taken into account when we draw.

Device Status. Here it shows only the Core Pointer (mouse) and no drawing tablet.

Let’s look into Edit → Input Settings in GIMP to activate the drawing tablet. There are two input devices for the Huion tablet, one for the Pad and one for the Stylus. By default, their Mode was both Disabled. In the following, I switched them to Screen, as shown below. It says the the X axis has no curve, meaning that this drawing tablet has no tilt support. In addition, we have not configured yet any of the buttons on the drawing tablet. Note that both the stylus and the pad have buttons. We just want to draw already!

Configuring the input devices in GIMP for the Huion 430P drawing tablet.

Let’s see again the Device Status tab in GIMP. There are entries for the Tab and the Pen (Stylus). Ignore for now the Tab settings (in red). We have the Core Pointer (Mouse) and the Pen, both with the exact same drawing settings.

Device Status showing both the Mouse (Core Pointer) and the Pen (Huion Tablet Pen).

It is time to draw again, with the mouse and then the pen, and compare. The pen is smoother, and evidently the line understands the pressure. The thickness depends on the pressure we exert to the pen!

The line on the left was drawn with the mouse. The one on the right, with the pen of the drawing tablet.

Drawing with the pen

We are going to draw with the pen using the Paintbrush tool. And we are going to experiment with the Dynamics option of the Paintbrush tool. And here is the most important tip of the day:

When you change the settings of a tool in the GIMP with the mouse, you are changing the mouse settings for this tool. You need to use the pen to change the pen settings!

Here I tried all the stock Dynamics presets in GIMP (see bottom left). I used black and white, and black to white gradient. Some are really colorful if you use other colors. You can also create your own dynamics!
We switched to the Ink tool. When we draw, we feel like we are using a calligraphy pen.

Another tool is the MyPaint Brush. It has many types of brushes. The following screenshot shows about half of them.

Different types of brushes. The one selected, is a 2B pencil.


Apart from using the drawing tablet in GIMP, you can also use it in Inkscape and Blender. It is especially useful in Grease Pencil in Blender.

A drawing tablet is a big upgrade to drawing on your Ubuntu desktop.You can start off with a Huion drawing tablet such as the Huion 430P. It is available from Aliexpress at around €20 from the official Huion Store.

The Huion 430P drawing tablet is supported in Linux thanks to the effort of the DIGImend project. They have done an amazing work adding Linux support to various brands to drawing tablets.

If you end up loving your drawing tablet, please consider donating to the maintainer of the DIGImend project, Nikolai Kondrashov, on Patreon, on Liberapay, or just buy him a coffee.

    i cant get that ouput in
    xsetwacom –list devices

    1. Hi!

      Can you tell me which Linux distribution you are using?
      Which tablet do you have?

  1. No output on xsetwacom –list devices
    Linux Mint 19.3

    1. Kernel 4.15.0-99-generic

    2. Hi! Which tablet do you have?

      1. huion 430P.
        In Ubuntu 20.04 works by default. Plug and play
        In Linux Mint 19.2 with 4.x kernel and Mint 19.3 with kernel 5.X dont work. I Installed de .deb driver and dont work

      2. Linux support for the H430P has been added sometime in the Linux 4.15 kernel.
        Does Mint reuse the Ubuntu Linux kernel?
        To be sure, can you upgrade the Linux kernel/Xorg just like Ubuntu does with the LTS Enablement Stack (

        Then, create a file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-huion.conf with contents

        Section "InputClass"
            Identifier "Huion class"
            MatchUSBID "256c:006e"
            MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
            Driver "wacom"

        Restart your session.

        1. On my case this works:
          Section “InputClass”
          Identifier “Huion on wacom”

          MatchIsTablet “on”

          MatchProduct “HUION”
          MatchDevicePath “/dev/input/event*”
          Driver “wacom”

  2. Yes i found this page i try what says and works.
    Its the same that you say on your response.
    Thank you very much.

    1. The Matching rules specify the product name, HUION.
      Which means that the system should somehow know already about HUION.
      But if it works for you, then it’s great.

      I suppose you are using the Digimend DKMS drivers.
      I believe it should be possible to get the stock kernel to work as well,
      since the Digimend maintainer mainlined the H430P work around the Linux 4.15 timeframe.

    I use laptop with Atom8350 processor, 4GB RAM and ubuntu 20.04. I connected Huion HS64 tablet to the laptop and nothing happened. the command xsetwacom –list devices does not give any output. I downloaded dgigmend.. driver from github and installed it. Still the PC does not recognize the tablet. Can you help please?

    1. Hi!

      Have a look at
      and the referenced link.

      Support for the HS64 has been added to the Digimend kernel driver on June 2019.
      Verify that the Digimend kernel package that you installed, is more recent than June 2019.

      I do not think that the HS64 has been added yet to the mainline Linux kernel, therefore it will not work out of the box like the H430P does.

    With my ubuntu 20.04 the command
    xsetwacom –list devices
    give no output, but the drawing tablet seems to work, like a mouse. I’ve not find the way to change monitor while working with double monitor.

    1. Do you have a Huion 430P?

      xsetwacom will be able to show your tablet if there is configuration on your system about your specific tablet. In /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/70-wacom.conf or near there.

  3. If you are a digital artist then you would want a larger tablet.

    I opted for a XP-PEN Deco Pro graphics tablet and find that size pairs well with my 27″ monitor. I download the Linux / ubuntu driver from official site . I used it for each of my software. I work on Blender, GIMP, Inkscape, Krita for the main soft and it’s a real comfort.

    Pressure sensitivity will allow you to “draw” different density of colours or alter the thickness of the brush.. like a calligraphy brush. Very useful.

    The buttons can be programmed to change brushes, zoom, toggle switches, etc. You can skip the buttons if you are okay with reaching over six inches to the keyboard.

    Hi Simos, this was the exact device that arrived today. This tutorial looks super helpful.

    Your page invited writing a comment if one had difficulty. In my case, this device has not worked by plug n play. So I have been trying to identify similar issues and resolutions. Please note that I am not 100% fluent in Unix / Terminal. I am very much hoping to make this device work on a 64bit Ubuntu 20.04.1 machine. It is not critical but would be very nice.

    Is it something like an unwanted space somewhere, as best you can tell?

    Hope this finds you well and content. Cheers from Texas

  4. Well, ‘lsusb’ command can see the tablet (mine is a H420) but the ‘xsetwacom’ command give me no output. Searching the web, I’ve found some videos and tutorials showing scripting options and installing some dmks drivers (digimend-kernel-drivers) but didn’t quite worked out (with me).

    Hi, apparently the problem @Mosqueteroweb is facing (I also read yor spanish page) is that Huion have also “256c:006d” branded as 430P which in digimend is HS64 see

    is Huion h420 supported? i have Ubuntu 18.04

    1. Many HUION tablets are supported. Some are already supported with the current Ubuntu Linux kernel and xwacom user-space software. Others, either need to just configure the user-space software, or also add support to the Linux kernel using the DKMS kernel driver from the DigiMEND project.

      I believe that the H420 should be supported since it is older than the H430P. When you connect it to your Ubuntu, does it work straight away as a mouse? If so, then there is a bit extra user-space configuration to enable it as a graphics tablet.

      In the case of the H430P, I had to update the firmware to make it better supported in Ubuntu. As a side-effect, the updated firmware enabled the graphics tablet to be usable on Android devices as well.

    Hi Simos! I bought the tablet you suggested (running Ubuntu 20.04.1) and everything works, more or less. I’m having the issue many others have mentioned, that “xserwacom —list devices” doesn’t illicit a response (despite being listed as a command, when I type in just “xsetwacom”?).
    Also, my GIMP seems to run differently from yours in many ways. First off, when I go to the “input devices” menu, it only shows the option that it greyed out in your screenshot, “HUION Huion Tablet pen pen (0)” and not the other two that you’ve used to set up the tablet. I am unable to set up the buttons this way.
    Secondly, I have a very limited set of brushes. I found the “MyPaint Brush” tool, but there are no brushes in it.

    The pen DOES work, however, and with the pressure sensitivity function. It’s just not setting up the way you’ve described.

    1. Hi Bela!

      The one thing I did differently, was I updated the firmware of the tablet to the latest version. Unfortunately, I think is possible to do only from Windows.

      One outcome of this firmware update, is that the pen can now be used on an Android device (phone, tablet), as long as the device supports USB On-The-Go (OTG) and you have the appropriate USB adapter.

    Not too unfortunate! I’m also running Windows on the same computer. So I’ve installed the firmware updater, but I’ve tried a couple of times and it doesn’t seem like the update is actually going through. The instructions aren’t very clear, so my first thought is that I’m doing something wrong.

    So, I open the program, click ‘latest version’ and ‘update’. At which point it tells me to “re-plug the tablet as shown”. I gather that it wants me to hold down the button, unplug and replug the tablet, then let go of the button. So I do, and get a message that says “writing firmware” and once it’s finished, it tells me to “replug the tablet and restart the software”. Which I interpret as replugging the tablet as before, then closing the firmware program and reopening it.

    The first time, while I was waiting for it to write firmware, I noticed that it said the current version was ‘18…..’ and the latest version was ‘19…..’. After I restarted the program, it showed the tablet as being ‘18…..’ again. This is where I tried the process twice more, but both times the tablet wouldn’t reconnect.

    I’ve also checked in with GIMP in Ubuntu, and I now have the “pen pen” option greyed out, but it’s still the only thing shown for the tablet.

  5. Run on Chrome OS?

    1. It likely does, especially with the firmware update.

  6. There is configuration in 20.04 that enables the 430P to work with the Wacom libraries, thus getting it to work out of the box.
    Initially, it did not work out of the box and I happened to update the firmware.
    When I next reinstall 20.04.1, I have the full set of tasks to try and verify that it indeed works out of the box and there was no small configuration that I ended up doing, that made the difference.

    Thanks for any advice.

  7. The Ugee M1000L is different from the Huion.

    First, locate the tabet at There is a Ugee 1000L which is likely similar to the one you have. The page says that the digimend-kernel-drivers should be version 6 or newer ( The Huion 430P from this post requires version 8 or newer.

    Therefore, the issue that you are facing is hopefully an issue that the wacom driver in Ubuntu simply does not know the USB ID of your tablet, therefore it does not attempt to use it.

    I updated this post. Have a look on how to add a section for your tablet in the wacom driver configuration file.

  8. Check my update in this post. I tried again to setup the tablet on a pristine Ubuntu 20.04 and noticed that it is missing the configuration file for the Huion. Follow this post to add the configuration.

  9. On my ubuntu 20.04 LTS everything worked fine, except for the pen pressure on GIMP.
    Even after confguring like the tutorial, the program just acts like the mouse, with no pressure.
    Other programs like Krita works the pressure
    Any idea how can I make it work in GIMP?

    Thank you for your excellent page. I have Ubuntu 22.04 and a Huion H580X tablet and I can’t get the stylus to work in either Krita or GIMP. It works with both plugged into a Windows machine so I’m confident this isn’t the hardware. dmesg shows this:

    And I have set the following in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/70-wacom.conf
    Section “InputClass”
    Identifier “Huion H580X drawing tablet”
    MatchProduct “HUION”
    MatchUSBID “256c:
    MatchDevicePath “/dev/input/event

    Driver “wacom”

    And I get this from xsetwacom:
    root@Clevo1:/home/chris# xsetwacom –list devices
    HUION Huion Tablet_H580X stylus id: 20 type: STYLUS
    HUION Huion Tablet_H580X eraser id: 26 type: ERASER
    HUION 256C PEN STYLUS stylus id: 9 type: STYLUS

    Any advice would be very gratefully received! Very best for 2023! Chris

  10. Does their any ubuntu driver for other huion tablets like H640p, I want to buy a huion tablet ( ) to work with krita on my ubuntu laptop. But I’m worried about driver issues.

    1. The Digimend project is behind the tablet drivers for Linux, including the Huion.
      This project sends their work to the Linux kernel and then every Linux distribution gets supported.

      Sometimes a new tablet might got supported just recently and the Linux kernel does not have yet that support. In that case you would need to check if you can use the special package from Digimend for temporary support.

      Therefore, for the tablets you are interested, you would need to check and see whether the support has been forwarded already to the Linux kernel (so all Linux distributions with that version of Linux kernel and above, are supported).

      For the case of the Huion H640p, the page says it is supported with digimend-kernel-driver version 8 or newer. It does not mention a Linux kernel version, which implies that there is support in the digimend project but did not get uploaded to the Linux kernel.

      However, when we visit the Huion website, they say there support Ubuntu and there is a download package for the Huion 640p,

      1. That looks perfect. Unfortunately my tablet is in the French Alps and I’m in London (long story). Not sure when we will be reunited up there but I will then check this out on the tablet and machine and post a confirmation assuming, as I do, that you have the answer I need there. Many thanks, Chris
